How to shift fake tan streaks

Say goodbye to botched, streaky tan lines

Added on

By Elle Turner on

Botched your tan job? I know the feeling. Been there, done that and brandished my streaky knees in public. As luck would have it Bondi Sands recently launched their genius Self Tan Eraser (spread it on over any patchy areas, leave for five minutes, then buff off). But, if you're in a pinch and getting ready to run out the door, whisk up this handy solution to shift stubborn tan streaks, pronto.

You will need:

  • Lemon
  • Baking soda
  • Bowl 
  • Spoon
  • Flannel

Step one

Mix two teaspons of baking soda and the juice of half a lemon together to form a paste.

Step two:

Rub onto any streaky areas and leave for five minutes to sink in.

Step three

Buff off with warm water and a flannel

And that's it. Done.
